Retro Sketches #35 - In My Flower Garden

Happy Halloween Everyone,
Today's post is for the Retro Sketches Challenge this week.  I stamped the flower image twice and then Punch flowers from various DSP using the Boho Blossoms Punch and the Spring Flower Bouquet Punch.  Sponged around the edges of the flowers and mounted some on Dimensionals and the rest on the card base.  I added some buttons, pearls and crystals for the centre of the flowers.  I wanted to add some twine or ribbon but didn't like the way it looked so I added the Border strip and stamped the sentiment onto it and extended the flower stems with a ruler and Old Olive Marker.

Stamps: S/U's Hello Blossoms (R), Occasional Greetings (R)
Card and Papers: Whisper White, Textured Old Olive, DSP Patterns Stack - Brights Collection and Subtle Collection
Ink: Stazon Black, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum, Pretty In Pink, Melon Mambo
